Moving baby to own room but DAD is the problem.

Reassure him you'll hear her (depending on how far away she is). Or get a video monitor. I never thought I'd get one but bubba has started rolling onto her tummy in the night and it freaked me out. Good luck!

My DH & I had similar concerns about our DD moving into a cot soon after she was born as she refused to sleep on her back so is a tummy sleeper. I think it was about 2.5 months before we did it. We ended up getting an Oricom babysense 2 breathing monitor. It is a similar idea to the movement sensors but this product detects when bubs breathing slows down rather than stops moving all together. It isnt the cheapest thing to buy (about $200) but considering the peace of mind it has given us I would pay it again without a second thought. Our DD is now 11 months old and we still use it and probably will for a while yet. Cant recommend it highly enough :-)

How far away is her room? If you leave both doors open surely you would hear her (unless you live in a reeeeaaaallly big house lol).
I think it's a bit cute that he's so worried but he's probably being irrational, it's unlikely that she will suffocate herself if she has a safe cot to sleep in (blankets tucked in, no cot bumpers etc).
On the other hand, why do you want to move her? SIDS recommendations are for bubs to share a room with their parents for the first 6 months. If it's possible for her to stay in your room then I would just leave her for now.

Im with him, we only just moved our 22 month old out to be with his siblings ... sorry lol
But if you are really desperate the intercom things are a good idea and work well, good for eavesdropping on someone having a conversation in the babies room too

I was/am extremely anxious about the SIDS thing so both of mine went straight into the cot -in their own room - from day 1 with a monitor. I couldn't bear one night having them in a bassinet next to me without a monitor (& too small for cot to fit in our room).
Never regretted it either time. I still use the monitor & DD is 16 months...

I started with small steps. Moved bub into the hallway when we went to bed so she was close but still in another 'zone'. My bub was noisy sleeper grunting and snuffling all night so I never slept well(what little I got anyway) and that was driving me batty. We had a boori Matilda cradle so plenty big enough up to 6-8mth could fit through doors. and by that time she was out DH had relaxed enough for her to move into a cot.

I'd just keep bub in the room until Dad feels happy moving her out.
All the best

little bubs need to be in their parents room until they are ready to move out for so many diff reasons. I think ur dp is right...u should have bub in with u for as long as he wants.
